SparkPeople member SPRING4FAL made 3 simple changes to lose 55 pounds and improve her life!
Very inspiring. But, I think I may have missed what the 3 simple changes were... were they 1) Tracking on the SparkPeople tracker, 2) Cooking your own meals instead of eating out and ??? I can't figure out what #3 is. I am currently about where you were when you started so I can really relate to your story. 55# would be amazing, but at my age (over 80), it is hard to imagine. Still... I can dream can't I?Actually, even 10, 20, or 30# would be nice!
